Students will be bringing home their packet with READO sheets (similar to BINGO) to be turned in on Fridays, starting March 6.

 Classes/ Students who complete their READOs will be elidigible to participate in the tournament of champions (reading trivia) on Switzervision on Tuesdays. Don’t forget family reading night planned for March 20, at 6:30pm. All prizes and events have been funded by our supportive PTO and thank you Switzer reading committee for your hard work and great ideas!

There will be no school on Tuesday, March 10 due to voting in the buildings. On the ballot will be the educational enhancement millage. For more information please see the following link. https://uticak12.org/cms/One.aspx?portalId=578321&pageId=39881292

Spring break is around the corner. We have a ½ day on Friday, April 3. There will be no school April 6-10. School resumes Monday, April 13. When we return from spring break, the M-Step testing window opens for students in grades 3-6. Your student will be testing on days assigned to each grade level and by teacher. Exact dates will be shared by your classroom teacher as the window opens. Please visit https://wbte.drcedirect.com/MI/portals/mi USING THE CHROME BROWSER. This site gives students opportunities to see sample questions and gain some exposure to the testing format of M-Step. This is not a study guide but will give students a feel of the test.

Looking forward to another great month at Switzer!

Sincerely,

Jacob Palmer
